My wife and I have been here several times and have always enjoyed each trip. My parents have recently relocated to the area and we told them they must try it. We asked that they don't judge a book by its cover. The "big red barn" of an exterior does show some age, but also some character. The highlight is always to see the smile on the face of my 4 year old as he comes down the slide over and over again. I have ordered the "top hand" sirloin each time and it has always been cooked to my liking of medium. I have always enjoyed the ambiance the live music has provided. I find enjoyment in the local places that know their customer and their niche. This is definitely not the finest restaurant in the DFW area, but if you are in the area I strongly recommend a stop in for a true Texas experience.

Thank Michael B

Outstanding steaks, great music and a fun dance floor. Don't wear a tie or they will cut it off and put it on the wall. This is the last of a chain of Trail Dust Steak Houses and like the one that used to be in Dallas complete with a slide. it is a fun place to go eat and maybe do a little boot scootin or buckle rubbin to live country western music.

Perfect evening before Alabama whipped Michigan, great steak as usual, and got to introduce a young family in Plano to a true Texas steak. Good band also, forget the name but not the night.

I was introduced to Trail Dust thirty years ago when visiting Dallas three to four times a year, on business. It is still a winner!!! Traditional Texas family dining with great steaks and barbecue. Different bands every night and the the welcoming service I remember from the past. My chicken fried steak and Shiners beer was every bit as good as it was, back then. Whole families come out for supper, music and dancing. Ice cold Shiners complete the picture of a traditional Texas BBQ roadhouse. Our group had a memorable evening. Luckily, I didn't have a tie to be "clipped" on this trip.

Dear Valued Guest,

One of our most favorites things about Trail Dust are the lasting memories our guest have whether it was last week or 30 years ago. Trail Dust would like to thank you for taking the time to give us a review of your recent visit with us. We are so happy you were able to make it out for dinner while in town visiting. We will keep the steaks hot and the beer cold for your next visit. We encourage you to wear a tie and join the fun of getting it cut off and hung on our trophy wall!
